From the pics on this website (and others) it looks like it folds down into a small twin-like sized bed. We are staying at the CR in October also, so I've been looking at tons of pics!

Interesting article! Thanks for posting. I'm sure some people will be paranoid and not like this at first. I think me included. but it's good they tested it on the cruises first. I'm also glad they chose the CR as the first to retrofit. They should have the Contemporary get any technological advance first.

This type of door is so handy. GWLodge has them in the bracelet form and it was so handy! I get so tired of those slide the key cards in, pray and hope they work and you get the green light...I hope they have this when we get there at the end of the month!!

Is it normal to get to June & not be able to book into February of next year?
When does the Contemporary usually open its rooms for the upcoming year?

I have to confess the waiting is driving me a little crazy. Only 9 months out I fee like we should at a minimum have the room booked.

You're welcome. Yeah, it's a bit creepy and big brother-ish knowing that "they" can re-key your room remotely. For example, if your room key isn't working because they keyed it to the wrong room number (which has happened to us at the CR) they can re-key it remotely (after you call the "call center" who relays your message to the front desk?)

It will be interesting to read about the RFID successes and failures that start emerging after the conversion. Eventually, WDW will be implementing RFID tech. in the parks. Most recently, they ran a trial with some DME guests who were chosen to use RFID cards as Fast Passes.

You should be able to call and book, but the 2013 rates won't be set until around August, I believe. You can book at the Christmas Week rate and it will revert to the 2013 rate around August. The online system can only book up to December 31, 2012. Just give 407-W-DISNEY or your TA a call.

I like at the end where it says something to the effect that Disney will have more rooms for the middle class in value and mod blah blah
To bad the prices are not a value. The last three trips we booked it was cheaper to stay mod or deluxe vs value (this yr by over $500)

You can book a room-only reservation right now by phone (you can do it up to 499 days in advance), but you can't book a room-only online yet, and you can't book a package reservation yet at all.

Package reservations for the entire next calendar year aren't available until around August or a little earlier.

But you can book a room-only reservation for next February by phone right now. Unlike what was written above, you won't be quoted this year's price, you'll be quoted this year's highest price, meaning the price paid for that room during Christmas week. When the 2013 prices are released, your room rate will be automatically adjusted DOWN to the exact amount (because unless you are traveling during Christmas week 2013, your 2013 price will be lower than the 2012 Christmas price you were previously quoted).

My apologies for omitting the part about being quoted the highest rate. Thanks for correcting my mistake.

contemporary pool/waterslide

This has probably been answered somewhere but my little one(6yrs old) is asking if she can go on the slide at the resort pool. Does anyone know if there are restrictions?
